Innovations in Concrete Pipe

What is innovation?  Can innovation be found in the drainage and waste water market or is it solely limited to hi-tech products or consumer-based products?

Although reinforced concrete pipe (RCP or “concrete pipe”) may not have the flair of a hi-tech product, the flash of a consumer-based product, or even the proclaimed “major innovations” of its competitor, HDPE, concrete pipe has, and continues to make, innovative strides in its design, manufacturing, and installation methods of the product.

Below are documents that provide in-depth looks at the evolution of concrete pipe over the years showing innovations that have driven improved quality, safety, cost savings, sustainability, and efficiency, showing that RCP is much more innovative than its grey appearance would make you believe.
